Read my review of Generations Deluxe Starscream (who Thundercracker is repainted from) here.

Vehicle Mode: This is one of my favorite recent molds, and happily we will also be getting it repainted as Skywarp in the near future.  Thundercracker looks great.  I love the striping on the wings.  At first glance he seems to have more paint apps than Starscream, but in reality they are about even.  It would have been nice for Thundercracker to have the silver guns and highlights like Starscream (and conversely, for Starscream to have had striping on his wings).

Robot Mode: Thundercracker seems to be the identical mode as was used for Starscream.  The wing striping carries over to the underside so you can see it in robot mode.  This looks really nice, and makes me wish even more that Starscream had wing striping.  One really annoying thing is how Starscream’s guns are painted so the barrels appear separate, while Thundercracker is just blue plastic.  All it would have taken was a few stripes of silver or red paint between the barrels to give Thundercracker the same affect, or even better, paint the barrels silver.  It would have worked either way.

Thanks for reading!
